Do we have any Canadian readers? If so, can they please start drinking all the Pepsi and Gatorade they can safely consume without getting bloated, and maybe get a bag or two of Doritos and enter the “Game On! With Sidney Crosby” Canadian-only contest on behalf of the Ladies? You know, just in case you win one of four Sidney Crosby Experiences which includes a trip and tickets to a game and a meet and greet with Sid himself? And say, if you wanted a cool American friend to come up and visit that week you go on the trip that’d be okay with me. Maybe a Penguins-loving Los Angeles friend who could um, you know, hang out and hold the camera while you pose with Sidney? You know, maybe we should both get into the shot, that might look better. A Sid sandwich. Oh Sidney, of course you can take of that sweaty jersey, we don’t mind! We want you to be comfortable! Let us help you with that strap…
So um, yeah. You Canadians need to get on the ball and win this for all of us.
Still-borderline-hottie Jason Giambi hit a grand slam in last night’s 9-2 Yankee win over the Blue Jays, giving the Yankees their sixth straight W and keeping them 4 games ahead of the Tigers in the AL Wild Card race.
Meanwhile, the NL Central stayed tight as babe-olicious Brewer Corey Hart and Price Fielder each homered in Milwaukee’s 6-1 victory over the Pirates. The win coupled with the Cubs 11th-inning loss to the Astros gives the Brewers sole possession of first place in the division with just two and half weeks to go in the regular season.
Only one week into the NFL season and already the city of Cleveland is ready to set
downtown Lake Erie on fire with their demands for QB Brady Quinn to start as soon as possible. The Dogpounders are one step closer to their dreams happening sooner rather than later now that Charlie Frye has been traded to Seattle and Quinn being named the back-up for this weeks game against the Bengals. Wonder if he regrets missing much of training camp with contract demands now?
H&R Links of the Day -
College football fans often scare the shit out of me with their cult-like ways. (Really, the Scientology Celebrity Centre right down the hill from my place seems less threatening than a stadium full of rabid Big Ten fans.) But if I was going to join a cult of Iowa fans, you could not ask for a better leader than JebusHChrist over at Black Heart Gold Pants, who says, PS I Hate You.
The Head Chic in Charge over at Leave the Man Alone gives us the Fashion Round Up for Week 1 of the NFL Season, and dares to ask; Who looks more like an Orange Roundie, Donovan McNabb or Bonnie Bernstein? (Bonnie of course, because that leather/pleather jacket was totally fug on camera.)
